The easy steps for making Homemade Garlic Ghee:
- Add butter into a saucepan along with smashed garlic cloves. Stir well.
- Melt butter over medium-low heat.
- Raise the heat to medium-high allowing the butter to come to a low boil. Boil for 1 minute.
- Reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer for 7-8 minutes. You’ll notice the milk fat on the bottom of the saucepan.
- Place the cheesecloth in the strainer and strain the clear garlic ghee into a glass jar and discard the solids.
- Cool the ghee before adding the lid to the jar.
Is making homemade ghee more economical?
- 1 pound butter
- 4 cloves garlic smashed
In a medium saucepan over medium/low heat, melt the butter. Add the garlic and stir.
Increase the heat to medium/high and allow the butter to come to a boil. Boil for approximately 1 minute.
Reduce the heat to medium/low and simmer lightly for 7-8 minutes. You'll notice the milk fats have settled on the bottom of the pan and the clarified butter is on top.
Use the strainer and cheesecloth to strain the ghee into a glass jar and discard the milkfat.
Allow the ghee to cool and place the lid on the jar.
Store in a cool, dark place for up to 3 months. Use as you would regular butter and also to saute and pan-fry foods.
